    Pharrell just killed it. He had everyone on their feet. Fantastic performance.

    G-7!!! Didn’t Vlado Know This Was Coming?

      Vlad’s not in the club anymore. He haz a sad (or at least he will in the morning).
      Of course, you can’t tell when you look at him, because of those shark eyes of his, but he’s really crying inside.

      He is a typical narrcisist who believes that he really is all that. Any grown man who is a leader of a nation who poses shirt-less on horses and with Bengal Tigers to show that he is a tough guy is only showing that he is a bully. He has the typical short man syndrome. I’ll bet it really chaffs his butt that PBO is much taller and so much more naturally elegant, and so respected.

        He spends too much time reading/watching US RW /Libertarian media – as Japa indicated…Romney made that same mistake in 2012. Trust these fools at your own risk.

    Gasp! Right before Channing Tatum came to the mike, there was a quick shot of The Cumberbatch!!! I think he was glowing!

    I’ve only seen 4 of the movies nominated for best picture this year.

    If you have not seen the Dallas Buyers Club I highly recommend it. I had dreams about that movie after seeing it. It was one of those movies that stayed with me for a couple days after seeing it.

    12 Years the slave was riveting and moved me to tears.

    Gravity kept me on edge from beginning to end.

    Captain Phillips had great acting

      One of the few years I actually saw a few of them. I saw “12 Years A Slave”, “Nebraska”, and “The Wolf of Wall Street”. All three were intense and worthy of the nominations for sure. I would love to see Bruce Dern win.

      I sheepishly admit that the only movie I’ve seen in the past year that was up for an Oscar tonight is the animated children’s film ‘FROZEN’ which I saw with family during Thanksgiving break. The others I intend to watch privately…..when they are released on DVD.

    • 24 hopefruit2
      March 2, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Donna I’m going to try to see each of those movies on your recommendation! :) :) I saw “The Butler” after you had reviewed it here on TOD, and I intend to purchase the DVD. It was simply A-mazing.

      • 25 donna dem 4 obama
        March 2, 2014 at 9:48 pm

        I think you will enjoy each of these. I still want to see Nebraska and American Hustle. I’m not interested in Wolf of Wall street. There have been a number of those movies made IMO. If you’ve seen one you’ve see them all.

    Does anyone know if a member of our First family will appear in a cameo tonight? (Thinking of FLOTUS last year.)

    For those of you watching, do you agree re: Ellen … it would not surprise me if she’s doing a stellar job …

        So did I, Carolyn. I also noticed that in a shared tweet (in the previous thread, I think), the U.S. was suddenly ‘first’. ;)

      Our S.E. was in freefall for 2 hours – and has been reversing itself in the past 2 hours – I have no idea why.

      • 62 forus50
        March 2, 2014 at 10:13 pm

        Global economy and all that. The Nekkei is way down. Tanking 2% now.

        • 63 99ts
          March 2, 2014 at 10:17 pm

          By “reversing itself” – I mean it is going back up! It was -50 points (1%) 2 hours ago – which has to be related to Russia/Ukraine – then it started back upwards – is now only -20 for the day – so +30 points (0.5%) in the past 2 hours??

          • 64 forus50
            March 2, 2014 at 10:28 pm

            Yeah, I just meant the initial freefall. I wouldn’t be surprised if they all open that way and then do a fair amount of recovery. Other than Russian stock…

    Russia is going to get hit economically. It’s the only real way to deal with this situation. Using force like the republicans want to do is ridiculous and reminds me why I am so glad President Obama won.

    WOW…Lupita broke Twitter with her acceptance speech.

    “No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”

    “That brings us to the struggles of today. The people of the Maidan and that of those from around the world, who support her, will not be put down easily. What the world needs to understand is that the Ukrainian spirit is strong. The desire to escape the heavy hand of Russia is deep. The yearning for Western freedoms is powerful. The majority of Ukrainians are tired of living under the control of a minority segment of the population which is corrupt ethnic Russians who would be very happy to reinstate the Soviet rule over Ukraine once again.

    Personally, I think that this time, the Ukrainian spirit will not give up until they have achieved independence. Unfortunately, the cost of freedom is usually very high.”

    So happy for Lupita! She was heartbreaking in 12 Years a Slave as was Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club. Both so deserving. Loved Darlene Love’s improptu song. 20 Feet From Stardom is a fabulous documentary…a must see. Damn I’ve seen more movies this year than I thought.
